I literally change on the shop floor. I just stand there in my knickers sometimes.

I judge when I need a top-up of Botox by looking in the mirror to see if I can move more than half my forehead.
I think only a woman understands another woman’s body.
I had a strong faith that I would, eventually, have a baby.
A Joan Crawford dress looks really good on an hourglass figure.
Even my basic, basic wardrobe is still pathetically colour coordinated. It just is. That is just me.
I will admit I am quite obsessive about the world of anti-ageing.
I hate trends, but I love fashion.
English women would rather go out and buy a washing machine than shop for clothes.
I’ve been nine stone for 20 years. I always eat what I want; it’s not an issue for me.
I think I just took a while to know myself. I went on a journey to find out. I was a bit wild.
At school, I was only allowed four sweets every Wednesday, so I’ve developed an addiction.
So many women buy these boxy, shapeless jackets. I always tell them to buy a jacket one size too small to get the right fit.
When you’re with a big TV channel, there’s a sense of having to behave in a certain way in order to get audience figures.
Don’t look at your legs and think: ‘They’re fat.’ Think: ‘These things carry me around all day, and I don’t have arthritis. Oh, and I’ve got great ankles.’
There were times when rehab and the halfway house were very, very tough, but I never felt that I wanted to leave.
Diets are rubbish. I eat healthily, and often have a day when I stuff myself.
I grew up in a very normal home.
I love the idea of cooking, but I don’t like using recipe books, so I’ll put a mish-mash together, and it might be amazing by total accident, or it will be a catastrophe.
To me, it is like a diabetic with insulin. If that diabetic stops taking insulin, they will die, and I believe that if I don’t follow the 12-step programme, I will regress, and that could eventually be the death of me.
To me, the word ‘workaholic’ is a negative word.
Perhaps British TV companies don’t want women my age on screen. I don’t know.
The first time I was given money to shop for myself, I was 13 and staying with my godmother in New York. I went to Clinique and bought the three-step acne programme and felt so grown-up.
So many people hide inside their clothes.
Ottolenghi sells lots of delicious sweet things, but my daily addiction is their unbelievable dark chocolate salted caramel biscuits. They’re the best things in the world – I go through half a packet every night. I bring them out after pudding at dinner parties.
I don’t have a problem with the stories saying I’m skinny at all.
I can’t remember a time when I didn’t love fashion. As a child, I was always particular about what I’d wear. I remember feeling most aggrieved that I had to put on a dull uniform to go to boarding school.
Shorts are practically a uniform in every woman’s closet. Tailored shorts are okay for running around, and if you’re 18, you can get away with cut-offs. But it’s very easy to make a mistake with shorts.
I’m not good at cutting off from work.
I would advise women not to be shy about admitting they’ve had Botox – it just shows you want to look your best, and there’s nothing wrong with that.
